Korean Spicy Chicken and Basil Leaves

Had some left over basil and decided to leaf-wrap my chicken with it.


So I Just Spent $111 at Pandora…

Because I had bought a cheap safety chain to put on my pandora bracelet so my beads wouldn’t fall off when I took off my bracelet but it was constantly unscrewing itself and getting tangled. And the only clip one was the most expensive one… so I got it and now I’m thinking of all the food I could have made with that money. 😢

Professional Steam Iron: Does It Work? (Not Sponsored)

The answer is yaaaaaassssssss. **cough** Ahem. Yes. Yes it does.

Mind you, I am black with hair that is thick and in my opinion medium coarse. With that said my hair is getting pressed out better than most irons I’ve ever had. It comes out soft and silky smooth. Dare I say it’s better than relaxer!

Only Con: this iron really sucks at doing edges and those small hairs on the nape of your neck. But if you are looking to press out your hair and not weigh it down with creams and sprays, this iron is seriously bomb.

Sorry no hair pictures; been sick all through Christmas and New Years so my face looks meh.

Kwan Dim Sum Express

So I was passing through STC and was hungry and look who opened up already? Kwan Dim Sum Express!

Was waiting a while for this restaurant to open so I was pretty surprised when I rounded the corner on the upper level of Scarborough Town Centre, heading towards the food court, and saw the place was not only open but busy.

Well I had some time so I went over, told the host it was just me, and got taken to a table. The host placed a brochure-looking menu in front of me and a pencil, wrote what I suppose was my table number on it and politely left me to browse it.

I picked the fried tentacle, steamed BBQ pork bun and Japanese coffee cake, and…

The food was good. I can’t lie. I was throughly happy with the meal. What I was not happy about was the server that brought it out. Didn’t really acknowledge me; just clanked the dishes on the table, I assume got confused because my order’s brochure-menu was beside me, not in front of me. Then she just drops the desert near me and walks way.

Don’t get me wrong, the customer service with the host at the front of house and the servers that took my order were stellar. I tipped her well. But man, that lady who delivers the food was like being splashed with cold water.

So overall opinion? Good food, good space, good servers, just don’t include the middleman/woman that brings you your food in that equation.
